Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Corresponding to the use of κατάλυσις in the last citation s.v. κατάλυμα, we may note the occurrence of the verb in the same papyrus, P Magd 8.5 (B.C. 218) τῆς γυναικός μου τὸν β ]ίον καταλυσάσης. On the other hand the meaning ";lodge,";as in Luke 9:12; Luke 19:7, may be illustrated from P Par 49.36 (B.C. 164–158) (= Witkowski.2, p. 72) πρός σε οὐ μ [ ] ἐπέλθω, εἰς δὲ τὰ Πρωτάρχου καταλύσω, BGU IV. 1097.5 (time of Claudius or Nero) περὶ δὲ Σαραπᾶτος τοῦ υἱου ̣ͅ οὐ καταλέλυκε παρ᾽ ἐμὲ ὅλως, ἀλλὰ ἀπῆλ ̣θεν εἰς παρεμβολὴν ̣ στρατ ̣ε ̣υ ̣σασ ̣θ ̣αι, and the dialect inscr. Syll 561.9 (mid.iii/B.C.) μὴ ἐ [ξῆμ ]εν καταλύε [ν ἐν τῶ ]ι ἱαρῶι τῶμ [Βάκχων μ ]ηδένα, where the editor notes ";vocem intransitive usurpa-tam divertendi vel commorandi vi apparet."; On the other hand, in Michel 725.20 f. (end of ii/B.C.) the verb has the meaning ";set at naught,"; ";annul,"; as in Matthew 5:17καὶ μηθενὶ ἐξέστω κατα [λ ]ῦσαι τόδε [τὸ ψήφι ]σμα, εἰ δὲ μή, [ὁ κ ]α [ταλ ]ύσας ἀποτεισάτω δίκ [ην εἰς τ ]ὸν [ναὸν τοῦ Διός. See also Kaibel 1095.4 νὺξ αὐτοὺς καταλύει —with reference to the departed glories of Homeric heroes.
